Widely endorsed Passive Safety Workshop comes to Birmingham in June
Later this year, a revised Passive Safety Standard – EN 12767:2019 will be published. Some of the changes in the revision include the way in which existing and new passive products are required to be classified, affecting how they should be specified. Electrical connections are also considered.
In particular, the changes between the old performance class recommendations specified in EN 12767:2007 and those contained within EN 12767:2019 are that rather than just three required parts to the classification, (Speed, energy absorption and occupant safety) there will now be a further four additional classes. (Backfill type, collapse mode, direction of impact and risk of roof indentation). These additions may also affect where and when some existing products should be used.
UK Roads Ltd invites designers, managers and specifiers to a Passive Safety Workshop to learn about the new standard, to know how to specify both existing and new products for particular situations in future. This event is endorsed by The Institute of Highways Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highway & Transportation. A full days CPD credit is available.
This workshop is also endorsed by Highways England who’s official statement reads:
“Passively safe structures play a key role in making the road environment more forgiving. However, it is important that designers are aware of and understand the requirements of the standard to allow them to design and specify appropriate products to ensure that the positive safety benefits are achieved. Highways England welcomes initiatives to educate and inform designers and specifiers to improve safety and I am happy to support this workshop”.
Jim Gallagher BSc (Hons) CEng MICE, Principal Structures Advisor Safety, Engineering and Standards Structures Policy, Highways England.
